Salt and Your Health

Salt is essential for the body to function. Farmers know that if they fail to provide salt licks for their cattle, the cattle will die. Salt is one of the basic elements of which the body is made. Without salt, we could not exist.

While sea salt provides natural minerals and trace elements, it can also contain industrial poisons cast into the oceans over the years. For this reason more pristine salts are often preferred - hence the growing demand for the Himalayan mountain (pure and unpolluted) variety.

Like the ocean (the lifeblood of the Earth), our blood consists of saltwater and a specific combination of mineral elements. It’s the inclusion of these essential minerals plus the sodium and chloride that gives Himalayan crystal salt its unique ‘life-giving’ qualities.

How much healthy salt should you consume?

Do not overuse salt. You must observe the ratio of salt and water needs of the body. As a rough rule of thumb, for optimum health benefits you need about 3 grams of salt (a half teaspoon) for every 10 glasses of water. If you exercise and sweat, you may need more. In hot climates you may need more, as salt and water will make the difference between good health and constant heat exhaustion. Consult with your physician or wellness practitioner about the benefits of salt for you.

Understanding the role sodium plays in the body, and the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ sources of sodium, will help you get the bad salt out of your diet while still satisfying your body’s need for a source of high quality sodium.

Sodium Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)

The current recommendation in the US is to consume less than 2,400 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day. This is no more than 1 teaspoon of salt per day. It includes ALL salt and sodium consumed, including sodium used in cooking, at the table, and in pre-prepared foods. The UK Recommended Nutritional Intake (RNI) upper limit for sodium is 1,600 mg, including sodium used in cooking, at the table, and in pre-prepared foods. Remember, you will obtain benefit from salt intake only if your water intake is sufficient.
